21. I agree with the part about Obama's campaign not being a battered spouse, but I think
a better analogy is to the battered spouse who is no longer putting up with the battering and has gone to the police just in time to find out that the police and her abuser are in cahoots, so she goes back home and gets beaten brain-dead by the abuser.

These challenges are WAAAYYY too late to do what needs to be done: stop the caging and invalidation of registrations that has ALREADY BEEN DONE to hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of voters and is still going on undetected. Neither does it alter the worst part of the equation which is the ownership and operation of the voting machines by hard-reich-wing Republicans who have already set the equipment up to steal votes in favor of the Republican candidates just like in 2000 and 2004.

I'm glad this makes y'all feel so good, but the failure of the Democratic party to deal with this BEFORE THE LAST MINUTE could be a fatal flaw for this election.

I hope I'm wrong, but the evidence is mounting that the Republicans have their machines (figurative and literal) in place and ready to deliver FOR THEM.
